Encourage Alternative Transportation Ben Franklin TechVentures2 was designed and constructed using the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Rating System. This standard promotes sustainability in building design, construction, and operation. To address LEED’s alternative transportation measure, TechVentures2 offers secure bicycle racks as well as showers and changing rooms to encourage occupants to ride bicycles to work. Cycling is an environmentally friendly alternative to automobiles because it reduces fuel consumption, traffic congestion, and air and noise pollution while concurrently encouraging fitness among workers.

This standard promotes sustainability in building design. To address LEED’s controllability of lighting fixtures measure, the lighting system within the building provides uniform general ambient lighting, augmented with individually controlled task fixtures. These features allow lighting to be customized in consideration of the specific tasks at hand, enabling occupants to tailor the workspace to their individual needs.
